AIR EP Member Days 2021: Post-emergent herbicides
Two AIR EP Member Day ‘Optimising Post-emergent herbicides’ workshops were held on Eyre Peninsula:
- Ungarra Football Club 21 June 2021. 27 people attended in total.
- Wudinna Community Club 22 June 2021. 51 people attended in total.
Presented by Mark Congreve, Independent Consultants Australia Network (ICAN).
The workshops were hosted by AIR EP and supported by funding from SAGIT and GRDC. A full colour booklet containing Mark’s slides as presented was distributed to participants (50+pages).
Mark provided an in-depth presentation on post-emergent herbicides relevant to the region, then following lunch conducted a spray coverage demonstration using water sensitive paper to illustrate that changing speed, height and nozzle type to suit conditions will have the biggest effect on coverage and efficacy of herbicide application.
